How To Find The Best Waterproof Action Camera For You
When you’re going diving, snorkeling or just having fun at the
pool, there are times you wish you had a camera to film the fun below
the surface. That’s where waterproof action cameras are great.
The only downside is that it’s sometimes hard to know which camera is going to work the best underwater.
are many cameras that claim to be waterproof on the box but when you
actually take it out and use it in the water, you will quickly find that
they aren’t exactly waterproof and you have just wasted your
hard-earned money on a camera that couldn’t hold out water.
order to buy an action camera that you can trust to take down and
survive the depths of the ocean and come back with video clear and high
quality, you need to know a few things about which camera is the best to
The most important thing to look for is to see how deep and
for how long the waterproof camera is designed to go. Or course the
deeper and longer the time the better. A lot of professional action
cameras are designed to go down up to 60 meters or 180 feet.
professional waterproof action cameras that can go down deep are
equipped with a special waterproof casing which is separate to the
actual camera. The case is usually made of hard plastic with rubber
seals which covers the camera tightly so no water can get in even at
depths where pressure is high.
If your camera doesn’t come with a
waterproof case or there is not one is available for it, then I
recommend you don’t take it under water. It may be ok to splash or dunk
in water without case but it won’t be a good idea to keep underwater for
a prolonged period of time. To make sure your camera will be ok
underwater is to always use the water tight case.
Another thing to
look for when buying a waterproof action camera is the size of the
camera and also to think about where you want to mount it. Do you want
to use it on the side of your goggles? Are you going to hold it on your
hand? For most people, the smaller the camera, the better so keep size
in mind when you shop for one. As for mounting your camera, various
cameras come with various mounts so pick the best one for your desired
In the end, it comes down to your preference in size,
mounting options, and design, but always make sure your camera really
can withstand being underwater by having the option to use a separate
waterproof case. Even if it costs a little extra for a good camera with a
case, it will be worth it for the peace of mind.
